• Kirkwood High school offers an Extended School Year program (ESY) for its students during the month of June. The program consists of credit recovery and credit enhancement courses. You may enroll in either credit recovery or credit enhancement-not both. Both programs require strict attendance-lack of attendance will result in being dropped from the course.


    Credit Recovery

    Credit recovery courses are designed for students who fail a core class (Social Studies, Math, English, & Science) and must retake the class to meet a graduation requirement. Courses run 4 hours in length for 17 days.  

    Bus service is available for students eligible for transportation.

    Credit Recovery will begin on May 29th and will end on June 20th. 

    Class for Credit Recovery run from 7:45 to 11:45, Monday through Friday.

    If you are enrolled in Credit Recovery, you are ineligible to take Credit Enhancement courses. 

    Credit Enhancement

    Kirkwood High School offers the following courses during the summer: Lifetime Fitness, Health and Personal Finance.

    ACT PREP WILL NOT BE OFFERED THIS SUMMER. This is a change from earlier in the school year. 

    Credit Enhancement courses run for a total of 20 days (not including weekends).

    Health and Personal Finance will be offered online through Launch this summer. Lifetime Fitness will be offered on campus.


    All Credit Enhancement courses will begin on May 28th and end on June 24th. 

    Priority for enrollment is given to rising senior students who need the course for graduation. Students can take one course for ½ credit or two courses for 1 credit.
